                                                            The property is as tremendous as the photos portray. Plenty of space for three couples to spread out. Andrew, Paul and Ghislaine provided great recommendations that made visiting Provence, eating in and dining out effortless. Highly recommended

                                                            Wonderful garden, beautiful surroundings

                                                            5 of 5
                                                            We spent two weeks at the house, with extended family: Kids aged 2-18, and parents. Maybe the best vacation we ever had! In between the quiet days at the house we saw several football games at the Euro 2016. The kitchen is well equipped - there is a blender to make smoothies, and all you need to have a barbecue. If there is one thing that could be improved, it must be the somewhat blunt kitchen knives. The ice cube machine was very popular, as the temperature in the garden was about 30+ almost every afternoon. Lots of things to do - if the kids got tired of trampoline, there was always some other sport equipment to take out from the garden shed. As we live in a much more urban area ourselves, the variety of birds and insects were particularly interesting for the kids. A huge bee swarm passed by the house one day, there were grasshoppers and other insects in all colors in all sizes and colors, and rabbits, bats and lizards (but luckily only a few mosquito, we could sit out in the garden until late without problems). We even thought we saw a hummingbird on one of the garden flowers - it turned out to be a "hummingbird hawk-moth" after doing some research (Macroglossum stellatarum), but still caused a lot of excitement! You really get a feeling of being in the countryside when you are standing in "your own" garden, patting the neighbor's horses on the other side of the fence. The pool was of course the main gathering point - big enough also for the older kids to have fun. If the adults wanted a quiet moment with a book the garden is big enough for that as well. The "Intermarche" supermarket in Venelles is 5 min away with a car - it has a good selection of fresh seafood, vegetables, cheese etc. This was very convenient, and we prepared most of our dinners in the "garden kitchen", instead of going out to eat. Even closer is the bakery, where we could pick up fresh bread every morning. I am back in Norway now writing this, at work, it's 12 degrees and raining. The holiday was wonderful, we all have good memories. the weather was perfect, but what we miss most is the garden and quiet days around the pool. Thanks for having us!

                                                            Best Ever

                                                            5 of 5
                                                            We returned from Aix en Provence last weekend following a fabulous two weeks in this lovely part of France. The accomodation was everything and more of what we expected. Hi-spec accomodation lovely gardens and great pool. The only advice we would give is to make sure you have a car. Whilst the property is close to Aix centre it is a 45 minute walk, which for us wasn't an issue as we like walking and are relatively fit, but even we found ourselves taking the car more and more in the second week. We will certainly return and have claimed it to be our best holiday yet - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !
